Cincinnati West End Money Matters

December 15, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Lincoln Community Center

Free
West End Money Matters

Find out how you can benefit from the West End revitalization and why your money matters.

 

West End Area Revitalization Enterprises, LTD (“WEARE”) is working to ensure that residents of the historic West End neighborhood are able to take full advantage of the upcoming changes. Many of those changes include the creation of FC Cincinnati’s new soccer stadium on the site where Stargel Stadium currently rests. As a result, WEARE has partnered with Huntington Bank, FC Cincinnati, Cincinnati Museum Center and Speedy Maintenance Service to create a community-wide economic empowerment initiative, West End Money Matters.

 

The kickoff event for this initiative is on Saturday, December 15, 2018, at Lincoln Community Center at 2 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. It also includes light refreshments and appetizers from West End businesses. Attendees who participate in the day’s activities will receive goodies and giveaways including free Cincinnati Museum Center Discovery Passes. The Museum will also be providing family-friendly activities during the event.

 

Attendees will hear from five experts who will be sharing a wealth of knowledge about financial literacy, obtaining a mortgage loan using alternative financing, applying for a Homestead Exemption, and overcoming tax issues. The keynote speaker will be public policy and business consultant, Dr. Vanessa Enoch. She is a community organizer who is passionate about social justice and human rights.

 

In addition, there will be breakout sessions on various topics ranging from entrepreneurship to employment coaching. The purpose of the sessions is to help residents best position themselves for rewarding careers from the City of Cincinnati’s Building and Housing Department. Make plans to attend and gain resources for your future.
